Correction. She says he's a GREAT person whose done a lot of bad shit.> in her dumb head she thinks she can fix him and that will make everything alright.
She never expresses any intention to correct him, she says she will share whatever burden with him regardles of how he acts. In her mind cheerio doesn't actually need correction. >Favaro talking to her about regretting decisions seems like the first real step in shoving her out of her naivete ever since Jeanne mistakenly told her that if she can forgive a persons faults then it's true love or some shit like that.
I think your interpretation of those two scenes in incorrect. The way I see it, it's a two step set up for:
1. Nina accepting Cheerios the way he is - already happened
2. Nina choosing between Cheerios and something else - will probably happen in the finale.
I'm not sure why some people still believe this show will change direction, when all the narrative around Nina and Cheerios indicates they are meant to be the OTP bound by destiny and nothing will stand in its way, yada yada. Favaro and Nina's conversation is meant to prepare her for choosing Cheerios over everything else. I expect nothing else at this point. Nina's character is too far gone.
